Description

Picking up where the first volume left off, this is a photographic journey covering a period of ten years in motor sport. Moving year by year, this book is written from the perspective of a passionate motor sport enthusiast of the day. Exciting, dramatic, sometimes tragic events are described on the spot, as seen over the driver or mechanic’s shoulder. These are the events that often made headline news the following day, complemented by stunning, previously unpublished photographs.
Synopsis

Recounting a time of unparalleled access to the highest level of motor-racing, this is an informal, personal record of the people, the cars, and the events from that golden era, gloriously illustrated with many previously unpublished photographs.
Now, a generation later, many of the cars and drivers shown here in their heyday can be found appearing at historic race meetings, drawing crowds approaching the size of those seen at modern Formula One, touring car, and motorcycle events.
The author’s personal recollections are complemented by contributions from one of the foremost racing mechanics of his day, Bob Dance. A unique combination, and a unique book.
